Saturday                                     Kalahari Region                    

Your guide will meet you at your Hotel where your Namibian Experience commences.  Journey to the south into the Kalahari Desert Region of Namibia.  Endless lines of vegetated red dunes capture the imagination with yellow grass and green trees growing on their slopes and in the riverbeds.  An afternoon sundowner drive into these terra-cotta dunes is richly rewarding (optional).

Sunday                                        Fish River Canyon

Travel south to the picturesque Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop and Giant’s Playground which is an impressive jumble of massive boulders, a virtual maze where time can be spent wandering through the extensive rocky labyrinth.  Proceed to the magnificent boulder-studded plains and hills to the east of the great Fish River Canyon, where impressive surrounding rock formations, provide many interesting hours for the enthusiastic nature lover.

Monday                                         Luderitz

Start the day with a guided excursion to the majestic Fish River Canyon with its viewpoints high above the deep winding gorges.  The next leg of our journey takes us via the small historic village of Aus and through the vast barren expanse of the Prohibited Diamond Area, to Lüderitz. After a short sightseeing tour of Luderitz, enjoy an afternoon excursion to Diaz cross where the daring Portuguese sailors erected a stone pillar in the 1480’s.

Tuesday                                                Central Namib Desert

After breakfast we travel to the famous ghost town of Kolmanskop and head inland across the impressive Neisip Plains to Helmeringhausen. Experience the changing landscape from mountain massif through white gravel plains to the towering red dunes. Proceed to the central Namib Desert. 

Wednesday                                   Sesriem / Sossusvlei

An early start is imperative as our journey takes us to the famous Sossusvlei with its monumental star shaped dunes, some up to 325m when measured from the base.  Formed by strong multi-directional winds the warm tints of sand, ranging from apricot to orange, red and maroon contrast vividly with the stark white surface of the clay pans at their base.  This provides photographers with a spectacular display of images to capture.  Climbing one of these dunes affords the energetic traveller with an unforgettable experience of endless vistas across a sea of dunes.

Thursday & Friday                          Swakopmund

Our destination today is the coastal town of Swakopmund via the Gaub and Kuiseb Canyons.  Visit Namibia’s most celebrated plant, the ancient Welwitschia mirabilis, found on the vast gravel plains. Prior to arrival in Swakopmund we visit Moon Valley, an unusual view overlooking the landscape formed by the valleys of the Swakop River. Guests have the opportunity of participating in many an excursion, please see our Swakopmund section for optional activities.

Saturday                                     Damaraland                                                        Breakfast

Travelling along the coastal road northwards to Henties Bay we proceed to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve.  It is here that one finds a small lichen reserve, where a small lichen reserve, where a relatively large variety of these interesting and slow growing organisms are protected.  Return to Henties Bay, where after we travel inland past the Brandberg Mountains (the highest point in Namibia) into timeless Damaraland. 

Sunday                                        Outjo / Etosha Border                                           Breakfast

Twyfelfontein, meaning ‘doubtful spring’ has been occupied for thousands of years with its spring attracting huge herds of game, making it an excellent base for early hunters.  The slopes of the area are strewn with boulders; all dotted with thousands of engravings and some ancient paintings, a virtual open-air museum.  Geological features in the area include the Organ Pipes, angular slabs of dolerite in a ravine form part of Namibia’s rich natural history.  In the vicinity is the Petrified Forest where millions of years ago giant tree trunks were deposited, which subsequently turned to stone.

Monday & Tuesday                          Etosha National Park             

Enter the world famous Etosha National Park, one of the largest parks in Africa.  Etosha owes its unique landscape to the vast shallow depression – the Etosha Pan.  During drier seasons it becomes an expanse of white cracked mud, shimmering with mirages and spiralling dust devils.  Waterholes along the southern edge frequently offer a rewarding game viewing experience and include several rarer species such as Black and white rhino.  Black-faced Impala are restricted to Namibia and southern Angola and the Damara dik-dik; the Parks smallest antelope is also endemic.  Hundreds of bird species have been recorded, with many migrants during the summer period.

Wednesday                                   Return to Windhoek

Travel to the town of Tsumeb, a mining town know for its copper, zinc, lead, silver and a variety of unusual crystals..  Whilst in the area, you will visit Lake Otjikoto where in 1915, the retreating German force dumped weapons to prevent them from falling into the hands of the South African Union Force. Several of these weapons have been recovered and can be viewed at the Tsumeb Museum.  Return to Windhoek via the garden-town of Otjiwarongo and Kavango craft markets in Okahandja.
